The Water Race at Enactus World Cup
27 September 2017
Core to the Enactus program is that competition encourages creativity and rewards results. The Water Race is an opportunity for Enactus teams around the world to compete to determine which team has the most sustainable, positive impact on addressing water and/or sanitation challenges.
The Final Four project teams selected during the Progress Stage advanced to the Impact Stage. Enactus students representing these Final Four teams presented their water and/or sanitation projects during The Water Race Impact Competition at the Enactus World Cup in London, 27 September 2017, to compete for Impact Rewards to scale their projects.
During the Impact Competition, a panel of executives and subject matter experts from The Water Race sponsors evaluated the Final Four projects in the areas of seeing opportunity through shared insights, taking entrepreneurial action, and enabling progress through positive impact. The winning team was announced that evening and then presented their project on the main stage to the World Cup attendees.
In addition to receiving additional executive mentorship, teams who participated in the Water Race Impact Competition competed for the following rewards:
1st Place: $20,000 USD towards scaling
2nd Place: $10,000 USD towards scaling
